"This is a book about the most dramatic day in the history of the world, the day on which Jesus of Nazareth died. It opens at 6 P.M.&#8212the beginning of the Hebrew day&#8212with Jesus and ten of the apostles coming through the pass between the Mount of Olives and the Mount of Offense en route to Jerusalem and the Last Supper. It closes at 4 P.M. the following afternoon, when Jesus was taken down from the cross. . . . The fundamental research was done a long time ago by four fine journalists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The rest has been added in bits and pieces from many men whose names span the centuries."&#8212from the Foreword

From Our Editors

Bishop's simple and direct account of Jesus' last hours traces the route that led from Gethsemane to a windswept hill called Golgotha. Bishop's meticulous research has uncovered many little-known facts that contribute to the overwhelming sense of immediacy in this story of God's love for humanity.

Editorial Reviews

“Intensely dramatic . . . makes one feel that the ‘greatest story ever told’ was here told for the first time.”
